Coordinates: 13°26′N 16°40′W / 13.433°N 16.667°W / 13.433; -16.667 Serrekunda (or Serekunda, proper: Sere Kunda) is the largest city in the Gambia, lying southwest of Banjul. Its population as of 2006, was 335,733 people. Although Banjul is the Gambian capital, it is on an island, making further growth difficult and channeling much of the growth to Serekunda.

Serrekunda is known for its market, its silk cotton tree and its wrestling arena. The town's suburbs include Kanifing, Latrikunda, Sukuta and London Corner, and the town flows into the seaside resorts of Bakau, Fajara and Kotu.
